1. What is your go-to flavour of the High-Protein Recovery milk? Do you have any creative recipes or mix-ins that you love?
I honestly can’t pick one – as first position is shared between Choc Mint, because it’s that nostalgic reminder of my childhood and peppermint crisp, and Chocolate flavour because what girl doesn’t love chocolate? The flavours in HPR are so authentic and natural that the description is exactly what your taste buds experience, one sip is a journey of utter love, warmth, health, wellness, nutrition and of course a taste explosion.
I like to add a shot of espresso to my HPR with ice, I am a coffee snob so a good quality roasted coffee bean espresso over ice topped with any HPR flavour is my quick and easy go to.
2. How do you stay motivated during challenging workouts or intense training sessions? Does the sports recovery drink play a role in keeping you going?
I personally think this is a holistic approach, finding the balance between work and life, nutrition and diet; meditation and stress; relaxation and sleep; adopting healthy habits in all of these faculties keeps my mental health balanced and inherently I feel good physically, so I am ready for each session that challenges me. We are all human.
We must show up for ourselves. On the hard days when you feel unmotivated those are the sessions that count the most, that add to that exercise bank account with interest over time.
If I didn’t have HPR I would not repair, rehydrate, and refuel as well as get rid of lactic acid in my body whilst increasing my lactic acid threshold as fast as I am currently doing now. Dairy is proven time and time again to be the best sports nutritional aid out there for recovery. You can’t argue with facts and science. So, my body definitely feels optimally fuelled.
3. We’d love to know how HPR fits into your everyday life. Is it something you enjoy during training sessions, after a game, or even as a refreshing pick-me-up during the day?
HPR Fits into my daily life depending on my current goals in the gym whether I am bulking or cutting. Either way I have 1 to 2 recovery milks a day sometimes 3. I called myself the fitness hybrid because I believe if you only do one thing you’ll only ever be good at that. I try and dedicate my hours in the week to strength, functional, HIIT, muscular endurance, aerobic, anaerobic, plyometric training, balance, proprioception. I believe in creating new motor programmes to exercise my brain by creating new neural pathways playing drums once a week. Every Sunday I pick a sport to do that I enjoy whether it be skateboarding, running, hiking, sky diving, soccer or trail running.
4. As a brand ambassador, how do you personally relate to the values and mission of the HPR? What about it resonates with your own lifestyle and beliefs?
First and foremost, my morals and ethics are completely aligned with HPR and the very reason I started working with this brand. I have never come across a brand that is so morally sound in terms of ecological footprint, environmental impact, non-judgmental, humble, has integrity, treats others how they would like to be treated, values humans, appreciates those they work with, making sure their products are completely honest in what they are delivering to the public. One thing I could say for sure is I don’t care if a brand wanted to pay me millions for represent them I would NEVER take on a brand I don’t believe in wholeheartedly and honestly. HPR is next level and you have my full support.
5. Can you share a funny or memorable moment when you realized that HPR was becoming a staple in your routine or had a positive impact on your performance?
I am a small built ectomorphic cis female that weighs 58 kgs, with a height of 165m. I am small but because of HPR I am dynamite in a small package. HPR is the only supplement I take as opposed to my multivitamins every morning. I realized that for my wee little size I am strong, strong is the new skinny when I managed to dumbbell press on a flat bench 5 reps of 27.5kgs in each hand. Anatomically the size of my wrists shouldn’t be able to handle that weight let alone my chest, back, triceps, biceps and anterior deltoids. So funny as it may be because of HPR I am dynamite in a small package.

1. What is your go-to flavour of the High-Protein Recovery milk? Do you have any creative recipes or mix-ins that you love?

I love the chocolate one because I’m just crazy about how it tastes.

My most favourite mixture is just throwing it in a blender with a banana or in my oats then I’m a happy chap.

2. How do you stay motivated during challenging workouts or intense training sessions? Does the sports recovery drink play a role in keeping you going?

In my mind I have this saying called “Kom jy” where it just pushes me to go even when I lose concentration I’ve got to go and bounce back. Yes, it does play a role because it pushes me to go hard and at the end of my session I get to enjoy my recovery milk while I know I have good things going in my body helping me recover so I can go again

3. We’d love to know how HPR fits into your everyday life. Is it something you enjoy during training sessions, after a game, or even as a refreshing pick-me-up during the day?

Most days I’ll have it after my training sessions in the gym where I know I’ve put the work in and sometimes between snack times when I’d like something good. Other days if I really had a hard day of rugby or HIT training I’ll push for another one just before bed so that it acts as a casein protein. 

4. As a brand ambassador, how do you personally relate to the values and mission of the HPR? What about it resonates with your own lifestyle and beliefs?

I get to push past my possible every day. The way I have to hustle and put in the hours to get my muscle not only in the gym, but on the sports field  as well as my daily life. That’s what stands out for me about how it resonates with my own beliefs. Nothing is impossible if you put in the work
I’m a proud product of hard work and consistency so it is my lifestyle to train and put good things into my body.

5. Can you share a funny or memorable moment when you realized that HPR was becoming a staple in your routine or had a positive impact on your performance?

It boosted my confidence in who I am as a person and the value it carries

I think it was making a advert for first choice about the milk with my friend where we try to replicate this video on another product and recovery milk then my friend had to drink powder as the “before” drink lol. His reaction was priceless. Loved it

1. What is your go-to flavour of the High-Protein Recovery milk? Do you have any creative recipes or mix-ins that you love?Very hard to select just one but one I commonly use is peanut butter. My recipe for pancakes is eggs, flour, olive oil special ingredient recovery milk in the place of normal milk and protein powder.
2. How do you stay motivated during challenging workouts or intense training sessions? Does the sports recovery drink play a role in keeping you going?
I’ve got a long and detailed answer to this one but I will keep it short.
Understand the goal in mind and how you would want to execute your training.
Generally I’m one that will always show up, whether I feel down or up, on a particular day but what I can say is that recovery milk keeps me consistently on the upside.
3. We’d love to know how HPR fits into your everyday life. Is it something you enjoy during training sessions, after a game, or even as a refreshing pick-me-up during the day?
It has become a handy tool to have in my arsenal, so I refrain from drinking soft drinks and occasionally drink juice so whenever I feel like having a nice and cold drink my go to is HPR.
4. As a brand ambassador, how do you personally relate to the values and mission of the HPR? What about it resonates with your own lifestyle and beliefs?
With my services, I believe in giving quality to my clients regardless of their income.
All my clients can attest to the fact that they have achieved goals that they never thought they could have by themselves. They know that every week they get pushed past possible in their training program.
5. Can you share a funny or memorable moment when you realized that HPR was becoming a staple in your routine or had a positive impact on your performance?
One moment that stands out for me is that I have stopped consuming any other form of milk other than recovery milk, even with my cereals. A funny moment happened at the gym when they ran out of HPR, one guy walked up to me and asked me where the milk was, so now they call me “milk guy! Why do you keep all the milk for yourself?”

SO WHY

RECOVERY MILK?

HPR is loaded with everything that’s good for you to push through your own limits again and again. Often the difference between good performance and average performance has to do with how you fuel your body and help your body recover. HPR helps you to Push Past Possible.
